Christian life is a warfare

Ephesians 6:11
Take up God’s instruments of war, so that you may be able to keep your position against all the deceits of the Evil One.

Ephesians 6:12
For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against authorities and powers, against the world-rulers of this dark night, against the spirits of evil in the heavens.

1)Eph 6:13 For this reason take up all the arms of God, so that you may be able to be strong in the evil day, and, having done all, to keep your place.
Eph 6:14 Take your place, then, having your body clothed with the true word, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness;
Eph 6:15 Be ready with the good news of peace as shoes on your feet;
Eph 6:16 And most of all, using faith as a cover to keep off all the flaming arrows of the Evil One.
Eph 6:17 And take salvation for your head-dress and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Eph 6:18 With prayers and deep desires, making requests at all times in the Spirit, and keeping watch, with strong purpose, in prayer for all the saints,
Eph 6:19 And for me, that words may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make clear without fear the secret of the good news,
Eph 6:20 For which I am a representative in chains, and that I may say without fear the things which it is right for me to say.

Love the Lord your God with all you are

Luke 10:27
And he, answering, said, Have love for the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and for your neighbour as for yourself.

Set your heart on God’s work as Solomon did.

And all the work of Solomon was complete, from the day when he put the base of the Lord’s house in position, till Solomon had come to the end of building the Lord’s house.
2 Chronicles 8:16

Every christian has work in the service of God

Of these, twenty-four thousand were to be overseers of the work of the house of the Lord, and six thousand were judges and men of authority;
